Fake Lion: Bunny Wailer Blasts Snoop Dogg for New Rastafari Persona

Bob Marley’s former The Wailers bandmate Bunny Wailer has reportedly taken aim at rapper Snoop Dogg for posing as a member of the Rastafari movement after immersing himself in Jamaican culture last year.

The hip-hop superstar previously revealed he had been anointed Snoop Lion by a Rastafarian priest after experiencing a spiritual awakening while recording his first reggae project, “Reincarnated.” He adopted the traditional dress and dreadlocked hair during his time in Jamaica and filmed his transformation for a documentary, also titled “Reincarnated.”

But Wailer is not convinced by Snoop’s new lifestyle and he has accused the rapper of the “outright fraudulent use of (the) Rastafari community’s personalities and symbolism,” according to TMZ.

Members of the Rastafari Millennium Council have also launched a verbal attack on Snoop, demanding he refrain from using the moniker Snoop Lion and apologize for his behavior or face legal action, according to TMZ. They have also fired off a seven-page letter to the marijuana-loving star, insisting that “smoking weed and loving Bob Marley and reggae music is not what defines the Rastafari Indigenous Culture.”

DNA Bust:Appalachian people boasted of Portuguese ancestry to avoid slavery were actually descended from African men & white women

you not white in america
As Jack Nicholson said in a few good men – You cant handle the truth!

Varied and sometimes wild claims have been made about the origins of a group of dark-skinned Appalachian residents once known derisively as the Melungeons.

Some speculated they were descended from Portuguese explorers, or perhaps from Turkish slaves or Gypsies.

Now a new DNA study in the Journal of Genetic Genealogy attempts to separate truth from oral tradition and wishful thinking
The study found the truth to be somewhat less exotic: Genetic evidence shows that the families historically called Melungeons are the offspring of sub-Saharan African men and white women of northern or central European origin.

And that report, which was published in April in the peer-reviewed journal, doesn’t sit comfortably with some people who claim Melungeon ancestry.

‘There were a whole lot of people upset by this study,’ lead researcher Roberta Estes said, noting that many preferred their assumed origins.
